Best Grays Item: Grays sticks
Inspiration for young hockey players: always believe in yourself , set gaols that you want to achieve some long team and others short term

eg.being the best right link on the field, you need to walk on to the field believing internally that you are the best at what you do and will dominate your position and play to the best of your ability and long term gaols would be eg.making the national/provincial/high school first team side but what you do at training and the build up to those long term gaols are very important as they are the foundations of the success to your long term gaol

I use the saying practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect I strive to have a perfect practice because primarily having a perfect practice will insure a good game. train like number 2 even if you are number 1.

Inspiration for young hockey players: Always make sure that you firstly have the love and passion for the game, this is the most important thing. If you enjoy what you are doing everything becomes easy, it is enjoyable to go down to the turf and to do all the extra fitness sessions. Otherwise as the saying goes “practice makes perfect” so the more you can get down to the turf to practice the more you will be able to focus on your skills and develop your game. Hockey is a sport that will test you emotionally, physically and mentally, especially as you progress to higher levels, it is important to keep positive, remember to time manage but above all enjoy the process.
